If you are an international student interested in our Montessori programs, please note that these programs are not SEVIS certified to enroll F-1 visa holders or other I-20 holders due to the primarily online structure of the program. If you hold a different type of visa, please connect with us to see if you are eligible to enroll.
Whitworth offers several Montessori Education program options:
- M.Ed. Montessori, Early Learning

Students in our graduate Montessori elementary and early learning degree programs are concurrently enrolled at Montessori Northwest while working on their AMI diploma. During the AMI diploma courses, you will participate as part of a cohort, which will provide a built-in support system and help you establish your own network of professional colleagues. Students in multiple cohorts join together to learn from one another in the final courses of the program.
National Center for Montessori in the Public Sector (NCMPS) and Whitworth University offer three online courses. These courses are designed for Montessori practitioners to extend initial teacher preparation and provide in-depth training on working successfully with special populations, social and emotional needs, literacy, classroom management, and more.
